The Under Consideration sites are awesome, these two I check daily:
Brand new features identity work from around the world, a great daily dose of critical thinking on brands and trends in corporate branding.
For Print Only serves a well produced piece of printed goods every weekday as well, ranging from a well designed and perfectly put together offset brochures to handmade limited edition books and posters. Always good inspiration for any print based project.
